Remember: The safest place right now is at home.
In May 2017, a new ADA-compliant ramp was opened at the intersection of the Major Deegan Expressway with the Moshulu Parkway. This ramp replaces a deteriorated stone staircase that had been closed for several years. During the period when the stairway was closed, it was impossible to complete this hike as described. Now that the ramp replacing the staircase has opened, it is once again possible to complete this delightful loop hike, which incorporates two historic rights-of-way in Van Cortlandt Park.
